Hoje para Jantar


  • 100 grams almonds
  • 100 grams sugar
  • 80 grams butter
  • 50 grams cream
  • 40 grams grapes (sultana)
  • 50 grams candied cherries (sliced)
  • 25 grams sunflower seeds
  • 1 cup ground ginger
  • 25 grams flour
  • candied cherries (for decorating)
  • 500 grams baking chocolate


  1. Put the almonds in the Thermomix cup and grind for 15 seconds at speed 9.
  2. Remove from Thermomix and set aside.
  3. Put the sugar in the Thermomix cup and grind to a powder for 10 seconds at speed 9.
  4. Add the butter and cream and set for 3 minutes at 210°F, level 1.
  5. Preheat oven to 360°F.
  6. Add the almonds, grapes, sliced cherries, sunflower seeds, ginger, and flour and mix for 30 seconds at level 3.
  7. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
  8. Use a teaspoon to place small mounds of the mixture on the baking sheet. Leave 5 centimeters of space between each one so they can expand.
  9. Place half a cherry in the center of each mound.
  10. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes. Turn the oven off and let the cookies cool in the oven.
  11. In the clean and dry Thermomix cup, place the broken chocolate --it is best to grind in small portions at a time-- and press the Turbo button 3 times, then grate for 5 seconds at speed 9.
  12. Use a spatula to scrape the sides of the bowl. Set the Thermomix to 4 minutes at 120°F C, speed 2.
  13. Remove the bowl from the Thermomix and allow it to cool down for about 10 minutes.
  14. Put the bowl back in the Thermomix again and set for 3 minutes at speed 4.
  15. Remove and sprinkle the chocolate on a sheet of parchment paper.
  16. Place the cookies on top of the chocolate and press slightly.
  17. Allow them to solidify for about a half an hour, and then cut the cookies with a round, metal cookie cutter.
